Online document library Docstoc has acquired BestVendor in an effort to “make every small business better.”
BestVendor is releasing the result of its 2012 Freelancer Survey tomorrow, revealing the most popular tools and apps for freelancers and entrepreneurs.

Being successful in business is about knowing what your competitors know and being able to act on it. If you could find out what kinds of work tools are helping your competitors stay lean and mean, it could be a real leg up. You can’t just call up a competitor and ask. But a new startup called BestVendor is creating a Yelp-like recommendations network around work apps to make that kind of tool discovery possible.
